Family. 
The most wonderful concept I could ever think or imagine.

Kevin and I are in a season right now where we are really having to make great efforts to slow down and spend time together. With him working 2 jobs, and our extracurricular activities with our church, his spare time is rare, which has it's effect on Ruby and I (we miss him!) But through great prayer and discussion and building one another up, we know it's going to be just fine. We have to remind ourselves to be stewards over our day, not owners. When we take it out of Yahweh's hand with a "I have to get it done, I don't have any other choice" attitude, we completely take away the Father's chance to bless us. 
So here's to letting go of figuring it out, not letting our emotions get the best of us, and to standing tall in knowing that He works out all things for the good of those who love Him. 
And boy, do we love Him.

PRECIOUS, just so sweet!!! I love this picture and your words of wisdom. I wish I had half the insight you do with your perception on life and turning things over to God. Good for you and Kevin for being steadfast in finding a spiritual balance in your life. And Kevin, you are such a great family provider and hard worker! Working 2 jobs for your girls!

And by the way, hello, Kevin in the front seat and "Kevin" in the backseat!!! She is such a mini-me!! I love it, she is so stinking cute.

I love everything about this, the picture, the words of wisdom I will take and add to my own life, and especially that Ruby has her own balloon. Cute!

You are a very wise woman doing a marvelous job of being a wife and mother. I'm so proud of you! Love you, sweetie

This is great! The part about being a steward with our day seemed to strike
My spirit hard. I can recall having the mindset of "I have to do this, this, and this" and getting caught up in that so much that I forget to even say thanks to Yahweh that I'm even here to do those things. Thanks Jess!
Bless you!
